Imagine a keyboard with a scroller on the side with a little analog screen next to it. You can scroll to the layout you want and type — no BS involved. Even better, imagine a tiny cylinder that sits between your USB port and the Keyboard — with a scroller on it. It can (on the fly, of course) intercept outgoing scan codes from the keyboard and replace them with the right thing according to the layout you selected
I wonder how long it'll take before someone takes this idea and flies with it....."

I've never been canoeing before, but I imagine there must be just a few simple heuristics you have to remember... Yes, don't fall out, and don't hit rocks.

Working...
